Well I managed to get on the website. Limited availability for our dates - less than before the offer. Weve ended up booking a king standard at CSR although wed really prefer two queens. It was the cheapest option so if we cant change to two queens itll have to do.

I've seen that before with Queue-it, but disabling javascript seems to stop the WDW site from opening at all. Is there a trick I'm missing?

ETA: That's odd - depends which address you use - disneyholidays/walt-disney-world/ seems to work fine with Javascript disabled but disneyworld.disney.go/en_GB/ just produces a blank page.

We will be booking a moderate (POR most likely), and haven't noticed much of a difference in the price between the rooms.

I am getting nervous now, with all this excitement, that we're going to miss out on something! We have booked free dining twice now, and both times booked June/July.
It's the fear of not knowing whether all the rooms/availability at your hotel will be gone. Disney have been restricting free dining more and more over the years so we don't know how many rooms they will allocate to this year's offer. Currently some of the hotels don't have standard rooms available so you might have to pick the next room category up which could be 100 more or it could be hundreds or even thousands of pounds more.

So it becomes a bit of a gamble and a test of your nerve - I think Disney probably will release more rooms over the coming weeks and this mad scramble today will prove unnecessary yet, having just posted in the last half hour saying I'm not going to do this, I've gone and succumbed to the pressure of it all and booked today anyway, getting a slightly higher cost room category as I didn't want to chance not booking and later regretting it. Loads of people won't be booking today and they'll still end up with the hotel and room category they wanted at a price they're happy with when they do get around to booking, I'm sure of that. I'm angry with myself for falling for the hype at the same time as just being relieved that it's done now - I know we've got the hotel sorted. Just need to get flights now

I just disabled java and used the link above and it worked fine for me. All the prices were the same last last night for the dates I was looking so no panic! We're not booking this year but just wanted to be nosy at prices!
